I’ve been on two cruises and I would never repeat the first (on a super-large ship), but I was so impressed with the Grace that I’ve made arrangements with Quasar for a group of 28 to travel with them next year. I have no doubt that our experience on the MY Evolution next year will be just as fantastic as our time on the Grace this past January.

We chose the Grace and Quasar Expeditions based on their years of experience in the Galapagos along with the style and size of the MY Grace. I wanted a small, comfortable and "classic” yacht, and the Grace was that and more! I did extensive research about the cruise lines in the Galapagos, read reviews and compared over 25 yachts before selecting the Grace. Quasar’s website and their representatives (Paul & Diane) were extremely informative, helpful and possess absolute knowledge of the islands and the options for the best exploration.

My husband and I traveled with our 10-year-old grandson. We flew to Guayaquil, Ecuador and spent one night at the Hotel Oro Verde (wisely recommended by Quasar). The Oro Verde was great, staff very helpful and the shuttle service included in the price of the room was there and waiting for us when we arrived. A representative from the Grace contacted me at the Oro Verde, and met us at the airport in Guayaquil for our flight to the islands, and the real fun began! Once we arrived in San Cristobal we were greeted by the staff from the Grace " they whisked away our bags and we boarded the Zodiac (or Panda/a small rubber boat) for the short ride to the yacht.
